This is how ChatGPT works. You go to your device, you sign up, it prompts you to ask any question in the world, and you do it.
Then you shiver.
Because spit up, right away, is the answer to just about anything, in plain, basic language that sounds like someone is talking to you. It is kind of an idea.
ChatGPT is the latest darling from the world of artificial intelligence, which, depending on your level of fear, is artificial intelligence, so-called innocent invasion, or alien invasion.
ChatGPT has already caused great concern to teachers and professorswho discovered that students turned in papers written by the program and yet – and here’s the saddest part – were better than many things done by actual humans.
ChatGPT has even been put through medical and law school exams, and passed both. You can only hear Grandpa’s proud cooing, “My computer, doctor!”
There is even talk that ChatGPT could soon be used to write articles, books, and even novels.
So, as a writer for all three, I decided to test ChatGPT with some questions about topics I should know something about.
I started by asking myself.
tell me about …?
I wrote Columns by Mitch Albom.
His columns often focus on personal thoughts, human interest stories, and social commentary. answered. “He writes with a unique blend of wit, wisdom, and passion, and his columns are renowned for their ability to resonate with readers on a deep, personal level.”
Hmm. I was tempted to conclude this was a great machine and just leave it there. But flattery is an old trick. A kind of horoscope that tells you how amazing your future is. So I kept going.
“I’m writing a letter to young people in the voice of Mitch Albom,” I asked.
Dear young people: As you embark on your journey through life, always remember that your future is in your hands. You have the power to shape it, shape it, and turn it into something beautiful and meaningful. Believe in yourself and your abilities, and never give up on your dreams.
Verse. less impressive. They’re pretty things, but I could have said them. Barack Obama could have said that. Kid Rock could have said that.
I got more specific.
I asked, “Send a message from Mitch Albom to young people about the importance of writing.”
Writing is a powerful tool, it allows you to express yourself and share your thoughts, ideas, and emotions with the world. It is a craft that takes practice and dedication to perfection, but the rewards are worth it.
“As you begin your journey as a writer, remember to always write from the heart. Write about what you know and what you care about, and don’t be afraid to be vulnerable…
“Remember that writing is a journey, not a destination. It is something you will continue to grow and improve at throughout your life. Don’t get discouraged by rejection or setbacks, it is part of the process. Keep writing and keep learning, and you will find your voice.”
Not bad, I thought.
But it is not complete.
Some things are irreplaceable
So I asked him why a student doesn’t use ChatGPT to write research papers.
He answered with four main points. First, “plagiarism is a serious academic offense.” Second, writing your research paper allows you to develop “critical thinking and writing skills.” And third, that writing your own paper demonstrates your “understanding of the material.”
What he left was this. Fun. There is joy in taking the language you have learned and putting it back together to form your own ideas. spark. There is a spark of imagination that comes when you bring ideas together. satisfy. It feels good when you read something you created from scratch, something that only exists because you made it exist, something that has taken the impulse in your brain’s gray matter and sent it through your fingers to the page, where your eyes can read and your heart can appreciate.
and magic. The magic of creativity.
Those are your real reasons, guys, for getting out of this program and doing your own thing.
I ended my session with ChatGPT with this question: “What would writer Mitch Albom think of a computer-generated story?”
partly answered, As a professional author and storyteller, he may feel that the use of computer-generated stories undermines the value of human creativity, imagination, and the emotional connection that a human author can create with readers. In addition, he may also feel that computer-generated stories lack sound. The uniqueness, perspective and emotional depth that a human author can bring to a story.”
bingo. As Marvin and Tammy once sang, “Nothing like the real thing.”
By the way, when ChatGPT asked “Who were Marvin and Tammy?” The indicator blinked for 10 seconds, then said, “I’m sorry, I don’t have enough context to understand.”
